Yes, as I entered the final county there was a definite warm feeling inside. In just 6 days time I would be able to say I’ve walked the length of Britain – plus some – all thanks to the Lightning Process:) It was when I saw this sign that I knew I had done it – in less time than it takes to watch 2 episodes of Corrie I would have walked the length of Britain – plus some! Jamaica Inn! and no, I didn’t see any ghosts – all a bit disappointing really 🙂 Bodmin moor. Soooo pretty. The path across the moor having left the crazy A30 for a while. Rural Cornwall unfolding before me The sun setting over the river Camel in Wadebridge Padstow! this wasn’t part of the walk, but on my rest day I decided it was a must to visit this wonderful Cornish harbour that holds such a dear place in my heart. So I did something I had been longing to do, I cycled the Camel trail to Padstow from Wadebride and what a delight it was. Since this time I have bought a bike and love my cycle rides. Part of the Camel trail The sea! On the way to Newquay the sea was coming into view indicating the end was in sight. Headed to the coastal path at Newquay. The weather couldn\’t have been planned any better; just look at that sky! Now that\’s a path that has to be walked! Having walked this part of the South West Coastal path before, I knew this was going to be amazing in this fabulous weather; and it was 🙂 Just look a the sands of Hayle reaching out before me. This really is a beautiful path and part of the country. Such a dramatic coast line. It was a challenge for what to include. Just look at the colour of that sea. Soooo beautiful Early in the morning, leaving Hayle having set out on the last day of the walk. Clear skies and the temperature was already soaring and by George I was going to do this! St Michael’s Mount from Marazion, near Penzance – I was getting nearer! Can you see it? can you see Lands End?? YES! I DID IT!! I REALLY DID IT!!! Thanks to the Lightning Process I recovered from ME and undertook a lifetime goal and achievement. One very proud and happy lady.
This section covers a lot of counties and was walked in just 9 days, and took in one of my toughest days of the whole walk!
A riverside view along the Severn on the way to Tewkesbury Some of the many cows that caused me concern en route! Thanks to the Lightning Process I did manage to get through all but one herd, as they were bulls!!!! The village of Tewkesbury along a river estuary Views along the path to Littledean Views of the Severn leaving Littledean One of the many villages amongst the rolling hills of Gloucester What an amazing sunset in Chepstow! Chepstow castle And here are my lovely ladies: Pippa to my right, getting set to achieve her dream of cycling the Severn bridge, and supported and jollied me along in so many ways. And the amazing Clare who joined me for a day\’s walking which was a good 5 miles longer than she expected!! She is a testament to the Lightning Process as she jollied me along. Thanks Clare. Pippa is a practitioner in the Bath area. Into Avon the Pier was a welcome sight for Clare and me as we walked into Clevedon YAY! we did it. She was still smiling despite her bleeding foot. Clare Hudman is a practitioner in the Gwent area This made for a pretty sighting on the road to Burnham on Sea The beautiful countryside on the road to Burnham on Sea. This was an incredibly tough day for me with sore feet and exhaustion The beach at Burnham on Sea – starting to look quite sea like:) views on the road to Bishops Lydeard Views on the road to Bishops Lydeard Halse: yet another beautiful little village in this part of our wonderful country. Entering into Devon this lovely little picture postcard view set in a little hamlet on the way to Crediton What a lovely little house in this lovely little hamlet Views on the road to Okehampton Views on the road to Okehampton Lovely. On the road to Launceston in Cornwall – the final county!!
Well we are getting there. Headed into the beautiful city of Worcester and the river Severn.
Bridgenorth in Devon is a beautiful old market town with some amazing architecture Headed out of Bridgenorth onto the river Severn for the next part of the walk. Parts of the river walk were prettier than others. At times the path is simply the edge of a farmers field, which is not too comfortable for walking! Parts are beautiful fields and woodlands. The Severn unfolding before me A view of the famous steam train in all its glory puffing along Life drifting on along the river Samples of the flora to behold Stourport Basin. A really very pretty little place Some interesting caves lining the path of the opposite bank of the river How\’s this for location location location?! Holt lock. A sample of yet another beautiful part of the river unfolding This house was in the village of Holt which was quite picturesque and a lovely friendly little hamlet St Martins church, Holt, dominating the village in all its glory Some of the beautiful flora along the river And yes, of course – Worcester cathedral. Sporting a one day rest here with a sample of evensong: wonderful The river Severn in the centre of Worcester
